In today's national coronavirus news:

Boris Johnson said he believed most Britons would rather see a focus on jobs and wage growth than on welfare.

He made the comments in response to a question from Stephen Timms, chairman of the Work and Pensions Committee, on the potential £20 cut to Universal Credit from April.

The Prime Minister said: “I think that what we want to see is jobs, we want to see people in employment, we want to see the economy bouncing back.

“And I think most people in this country would rather see a focus on jobs and a growth in wages, than focusing on welfare, but clearly we have to keep all these things under review.”
